Board of Directors & Staff

The Richmond County Chamber is governed by a 20-member Board of Directors, run by a staff of two, and supported by dozens of volunteers. Together with nearly 400 members, we advocate for the business interests of our community, connect members with the people and information they need to thrive, promote a thriving economy and community, and help members save money.
